On Wednesday 15th, 2012 (Mercredi 15 Février, 2012), we celebrate the name CLAUDE.
Bonne fête à tous les Claude
Happy Name’s Day to all the Claude
Typically a masculine name, Claude is also a feminine name in France – although not as much. A famous Claude that we enjoy very much is Claude Monet, the French impressionist painter. Do you recognize this painting? You can see the original at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
Claude Monet Painting
Bridge Over a Pond of Water Lilies – Le Bassin aux Nymphéas (1899)
Here Claude Monet is on the same bridge he painted in his famous Bridge Over a Pond of Water Lilies (Le Bassin aux Nymphéas). In this painting, Étienne Clémentel, a French politician but who was also passionate for Arts captured Monet in his garden in Giverny, France.
